  • Did not adhere well to bare skin, applicator worthless, had to be pressed firmly onto skin with fingertip
  • Short-wearing (faded after six hours of wear)

Formula Overview

$40.00/0.14 oz. – $285.71 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have “pearlescent and intense pigments” that deliver “vibrant color with a satin sheen.” The texture was described “as fine as a puff of dust, becoming creamy upon application” and has “8 hours” of wear. The sponge-tip applicator was designed to be used directly on the lids.

Loose eyeshadow is typically more difficult to work with than pressed eyeshadow, so I feel like most buyers are looking for something extra about a loose formula, and there was absolutely nothing special about these… and they were particularly challenging to work with. I was surprised at how NOT finely-milled the texture was myself; there was a general dryness to it that made them prone to sheering out as they did not adhere well to bare skin.

The applicator made exacerbated that–the only way I could really get them to adhere decently was to really press it into the skin and do almost no blending as blending resulted in some of it disappearing and some of it resulting in fall out. Speaking of fall out, there was a significant amount of product fallout–aka waste–every time I opened it, as that applicator did not hold the product well. It was also very short/stubby, which may not be comfortable to hold in the hand for some.

One of my favorite parts about Chanel’s eyeshadow quads is that they tend to sit well on bare skin, but these emphasized dryness and imperfections. They lasted six hours before showing signs of fading.
